Prayer Request for an Important Event

Posted: November 1, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hey Folks,

I need some people to be praying for me over the next two weeks. On Saturday I head to India to train pastors who overseer about 600 churches. They are all from the district or state of Orissa in eastern India. Over a three day period I will do 15 hours of training for them. Some of you might be thinking that the name Orissa rings a bell. Well two years ago there was some major violence between Christians and Hindus in Orissa. Several people were killed and numerous churches where burned. I am including a link about it from the BBC. I am not at all concerned about my safety but want prayer for the conference and for these pastors. They are living and serving in a difficult situation, yet they still have a desire to serve the people around them and make a difference in their communities. Pray that I am able to give them the skills, ideas, and encouragement they need to truly disciple their congregations and plant more churches.

This trip is also very strategic for another reason. At Northland we have a goal to see at least one evangelical church providing live, interactive, web streaming of their worship services, in the twenty largest languages in the world. Five of the top twenty languages are in India. So I will also be looking to see if there are not two or three possible partner churches represented in this group.

Finally, if you can pray for this trip and event it would be a huge encouragement to know that. Would you click on the poll below in the appropriate place? Feel free to leave a comment as well. I will try to update you all from India.

With you in His Great Adventure,

Dan

    Hey Dan. Our Lord will go before you.

    If you need a good contact there, I have one.

    Let me know.

    Thank you for what you do – and why you do it.

    Gratitude and Respect,
    Rich

    In the Bible, when God told David to go fight Goliath, it says that David moved quickly toward the battlefield. In other words, he didn’t think about it. He didn’t allow fear to grip his heart and talk him out of it. He just did what God wanted him to do.
    So many people today are just sitting on the sidelines of life. They have tremendous potential on the inside, but they keep letting the enemy talk them out of doing what God wants them to do. Thank you to you and all these pastors for resisting fear and boldly embracing God’s purpose.
    I pray He will fill you with His strength so that you can be a blessing to those that will in turn be a blessing to those still walking in the dark.
    God bless,
    Paula Masters

    I’ll be praying for your success and safety in India. I’m excited to hear of the news of God’s incredible work over there. I’ll be leaving for Pune, India.
